GOP hits Davis on Cuba



Wasting no time, the Republican Party of Florida on Friday noted Jim Davis' visit to Ybor City and brought up his past visit to Cuba, which you can read about here.


“We are all well aware of how little Jim Davis has done while he was in D.C., his voting record is the stuff of legends, missing more votes than all but one congressman.  That being said, his actions and what he has sponsored are just as questionable.  That Jim Davis was the first Congressman from Florida to visit Communist Cuba shows a remarkable lack of understanding about what so many Cuban-Americans in Florida have endured in their fight to reach freedom. Congressman Davis should explain to the Democrat candidates joining him at the event why he then returned from Cuba and sponsored legislation that eased restrictions on the Cuban dictator.  I have a feeling a fair amount of Florida would be interested in that answer.”
